These items are the two combs and one plastic pick, all classifiable in subheading 9615.11.3000, HTS, which provides for Combs, ...: Of hard rubber or plastics: Combs: ... Valued over $4.50 per gross: ... Other. The rate of duty will be 28.8 cents gross plus 4.6% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations 19 (C.F.R. 177).
